Why locals love it

A venerable Mumbai institution, Gokul is the only watering hole left in the city where all social classes still rub shoulders, from construction workers and off duty cops seeking cheap rum to corporate lawyers letting off steam after long days in the office. This "dive bar" is devoted to serious drinking; spirits, not beer, are the main focus.

Why you should visit it

Unlike the increasingly tourist-dominated Café Leopold and Café Mondegar nearby, Gokul's clientele remains mostly local, and offers a more authentic flavor of the city and its diversity. The food is also surprisingly good, especially the tava fish (bangda, surmai, bombil), liver or pota masala, and prawns koliwada.

Special tip

If you want some late night nosh after Gokul closes, Bade Miya is on the street right outside. Try their baida (egg) rotis and bheja (brain) dishes.
